Collective Rights are rights guaranteed to specific groups in Canadian society for historical and constitutional reasons. These groups are: Aboriginal peoples, including First Nations, Metis and Inuit; and Francophones and Anglophones. bY bRYCE AND jOSH j
sOCIAL 9 hONORS Japanese Canadians started arriving in Canada in 1870's. Japanese women started to arrive in 1887. They came to Canada looking for a better life and also came to escape conscription. By 1931, there was a total of 652 in Alberta. Bibliography:
http://www.yesnet.yk.ca/schools/projects/canadianhistory/camps/internment1.html In 1942, 22 000 Japanese Canadians were expelled from being within 100 miles of the Pacific/Canada border. They got 24 hours to pack before they got sent to camps. Many got sent to detention camps in BC while many were sent to POW camps at Angler and Petawaw in Ontario. These detentions continued till the end of the war. Until the end of the 1940's, BC polititions pandered white supremacists to make the Japanese Canadians leave Canada. After the bombing of Pearl Harber, 21 000 Japanese were "evacuated" from their homes in BC and deprived of their land rights. they were then put forced into camps or were told to live elsewhere. After the war, they started to rebuild their lives but couldn't rebuild their communtiy because of being spread throughout Canada. In 1988, 46 years after being releaved of internment camps, they were compensated for all that they endured during the war. Prime Minister Mulroney signed a compensation package that gave each internee $21 000. There was a total of $12 million given to former interns. 68 years later, around 2008, Canada was still paying for what they did to the Japanese Canadians. Now the Japanese Canadians are protected under everything in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Collective Rights are important to all Canadians because they give us all a sense of belonging in society. They also make sure that their rights are protected under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. They give these groups a sense of belonging in their ethinic origin and language.
